Apparently, Stephenie Meyer is going to start writing again! Excited? Here’s some more about it from examiner.com:
Twilight Saga and The Host author Stephenie Meyer is expected to return to her computer this month to begin writing again.
She’s been working as a producer on The Host this year, but the film’s production wrapped yesterday, and she reported on her blog, “I’m looking forward to this May, when I will officially be home for good and back here at my computer where I like to be best.”
Unless her recent book-to-film adaptation project acquisition changes her plans, it’s time!
So, what will Meyer work on next?
Last year, Meyer told USA Today about three possibilities.
One is a fantasy novel which she described as taking “place in another world where people are using bows and arrows and swords. There’s a little bit of magic, but it’s a very limited form of magic. The characters are human, and some have the ability to use magic and some don’t. It’s pretty dark. People die. The main character is a 17-year-old girl, and she’s kind of cool.”
She also mentioned her interest in a story about mermaids, which she already has “a very elaborate outline for a book” about. At the time, she reported, she was “not working on it right [then], but I have the feeling it’s going to be big. It’s going to be 1,000 pages.”
The third potential writing project for Meyer is the second installment to her The Host trilogy. She explained last year, “I have the outline written and the first two chapters. I need to get on it.
I don’t know about you…but I’m down for some mermaids! Some fans are really eager for Meyer to get back to business. And other are still hoping for a certain project to be finish. Midnight Sun, anyone?
The lingering other possibility, of course, is MidnightSun, the version of Twilight she began writing from the perspective of “Edward” but later abandoned after a draft of the book leaked online. That project seems the least likely, though, given her statement about the issue last year to USA Today: “I’m hoping to do it someday because I know that’s what people want. No matter what book I put out from here to eternity they’ll want Midnight Sun, but I’m just not writing about vampires right now.”
So, she doesn’t want to write about vampires right now. I’m actually really excited to see her write some new stuff. The Host was amazing, but I’m ready for something even newer!
Here’s a video from last summer, where Stephenie talks about future writing projects.
